Repainting Liberty

Maybe we just, misunderstood
That the gun was cocked and loaded
Missed the signs we were losing blood
As our humanity was being eroded
An enraptured growth of poisonous self
Trampled justice and social inclusion
As a nation’s need for commonwealth
Disappeared beneath the bigot’s illusion
Rhetoric ascends to its throne of thorns
Truth bleeds on the horns of despair
Bigotry rejoices while humanity mourns
The victory parades of a vile billionaire
